A remarkable example of the style, extremely light and delicate tartness with funk notes and savory fruity character. A remarkable specimen, I’m very happy that this is available in the US. Stone Sour Fest 2012 and also generously shared by Zack S.

An excellent gueuze that brings a lot of complexity, funk and mustiness. Yet is refreshing, tart, with a progression of flavors. Finishes bright and sour and yummy.

incredible like almost every real gueuze, sourness and tart are incredibly powerful. Barnyard feel. Very good!

2010-2011 bottle - Pours hazy yellow-orange with a small, white, bubbly head. The wild funkiness dominates the aroma. We want the funk! The flavor is full of that good farmhouse, earthy, tart funk. It’s medium bodied with a lasting taste of wild yeast in the dry finish. It works well. I’ve had better lambics, but this is good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a bright and cloudy orange color with a large white head. A bursting aroma of hay, lemons, dust, funk. The flavor is a vigorous gueuze; initially quite sour, not acidic but very tart, some sweet wheat, loads of lemon and oranges. Certainly quite drinkable and refreshing with a huge bite of sourness. Of course lots of carbonation. Good, very damn good. The value for money is excellent and this may be my go-to-gueuze in my market.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rating #1500!!! It’s been a long, strange trip. Shared with my friend Barry, and served in a wine glass. Pours cloudy orange, with a thin white head, and poor lacing. Nose is tart and juicy, nice and sweaty like I like, but not as aggressive as say, a Cantillon, nor as delicate as a Drie Fonteinen, almost most similar to a Girardin, but fuller. Flavours of apricot, sweat, navel orange, dry earth, very tight and aggressive on one hand, yet juicy and giving on the other. maybe doesn’t pack the "Rare" like Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen, but this certainly has the chops to match up with either. Decadent and delicious.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful slightly hazy honey color with off white head that slowly drops to a thick blanket. Great nose, somewhat funky, tart green apples, wet paper, citrus. Taste is a little more subdues than the nose but nice non the less. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, green apples a little funk tart and dry finish. Light body active and delicate carbonation. A very nice, easily approachable gueuze.
